Here is the problem, I will start a project with symmetry turned on. I will do numerous Super Shifts, Shifts, Bevels, etc. This works fine for a while then suddenly things start to get out of whack and it no longer acts like it is symmterical (I can no longer select a poly on one side and have its mirror poly select. I have never been able to maintain symmtery with any model from start to finish. Is this just me, a mac problem, or a generic Lightwave problem? I have been using Lightwave for years and have always experienced this problem. Is anyone else having this problem. ...or is there some trick that I am not aware of?

Dan Ablan describes this phonomena in "Inside Lightwave 8", so its both PC and Mac, he urges you to save frequently, delete half and mirror often.
